    Austin Kiddie Limits 2010 Lineup Announced (Along With, Er, the Rest of Austin City Limits Fest)

    Well, the lineup for the 2010 edition of the Austin City Limits Festival is out and there, in the tiny type at the end, is the initial set of bands for the Austin Kiddie Limits stage. I'd known about a few of these, but some -- The Verve Pipe! -- come as a big surprise to me (in a good way...)

    The Verve Pipe
    Frances England
    The Jellydots
    Elizabeth Mitchell
    Okee Dokee Brothers
    Tom Freund
    Paul Green School of Rock
    Q Brothers

    Now, there were 10 acts total (plus guest artists) at last year's edition, so a couple more names could be added at some point, but even as it is that is one solid lineup.

    As for the rest of the schedule (y'know, for the adults in the crowd), I'm underwhelmed by the names at the top of the card. I mean, they're OK, but I'm not geeked about them (like my Muse-obsessed neighbor would be). But there are enough folks on the undercard (LCD Soundsystem, Spoon, Sonic Youth, Robert Randolph, many more) that it should be an excellent three days...

    A very nice mix of bands I really really like, some I've seen live and will be excited to see again, some I haven't seen live and am excited to for the first time! It's gonna be fun.

    @Elizabeth: You're right, the font-size gradation is pretty small -- lots of folks on the same font scale, so to speak.

    @Gwyneth: Sorry I missed that one... of course, you would know better than anyone...
